Robert and Thais will be event hosts for this hike. They would love to show this one to the group.
Length: 10 miles
Elevation Gain: 2000 ft.
Trail: single track, fire road, fire break
The first two miles take you from the Placerita Nature Center parking lot to the Los Pinetos Trailhead via the Canyon trail with only a 250 foot elevation gain. Mile 3 of the trek is the HARDEST with an elevation gain of 700 feet. The 4th mile just goes about to the top, but only has an elevation gain of a bit more than 400 feet. We will take a little-used side trail to add to the adventure.
From here we'll head over to the Los Pinetos radio towers that are visable from the 5 fwy. Next we backtrack a bit, and return via the Los Pinetos trail.
Here is the link from when we did this hike:
Exit the 14 Fwy at Placerita Canyon Rd and go South 1.5 miles to the park entrance on the right. Parking is free and the map above is accurate.
